Can You Tell Me How To Get, How To Get To Indoctrination Street

[Cross-posted at Athens Runaway]

To head off any arguments at the pass, yes, this might be nit-picking. But it’s the symptom of a larger problem.

According to National Geographic, the kids’ television show Sesame Street will be teaching kids about the joys of “sustainable living.”

Sustainable living? You mean like eating your pets?

From Stuff.Co.Nz:

The eco-pawprint of a pet dog is twice that of a 4.6-litre Land Cruiser driven 10,000 kilometres a year, researchers have found.

Victoria University professors Brenda and Robert Vale, architects who specialise in sustainable living, say pet owners should swap cats and dogs for creatures they can eat, such as chickens or rabbits, in their provocative new book Time to Eat the Dog: The real guide to sustainable living.

The couple have assessed the carbon emissions created by popular pets, taking into account the ingredients of pet food and the land needed to create them.

“If you have a German shepherd or similar-sized dog, for example, its impact every year is exactly the same as driving a large car around,” Brenda Vale said.

“A lot of people worry about having SUVs but they don’t worry about having Alsatians and what we are saying is, well, maybe you should be because the environmental impact… is comparable.”

In a study published in New Scientist, they calculated a medium dog eats 164 kilograms of meat and 95kg of cereals every year. It takes 43.3 square metres of land to produce 1kg of chicken a year. This means it takes 0.84 hectares to feed Fido.

“The title of the book is a little bit of a shock tactic, I think, but though we are not advocating eating anyone’s pet cat or dog there is certainly some truth in the fact that if we have edible pets like chickens for their eggs and meat, and rabbits and pigs, we will be compensating for the impact of other things on our environment.”

Professor Vale took her message to Wellington City Council last year, but councillors said banning traditional pets or letting people keep food animals in their homes were not acceptable options.

Yes. I totally think my little siblings getting the idea that eating pets to help Gaia is a good thing that should be encouraged.

Think that’s an extreme example? Think that this is a function of PBS’s funding?

Think again. While most of the videos that were linked to have been taken down by the users, BigGovernment.com’s John Nolte did manage to get transcripts for 11 Obama-worshiping songs that teachers had kids perform for them in the classroom. On your dime. Here’s some fun excerpts from some of them:

“Change We Can Believe In”- Morgan Park High School, Chicago, IL

Tell the children
Take them by the hand
Tell the generations that we can take a stand
Tell the nation let them know that God can heal our land

Change is what we all must be
Change is what we all must see
This is our moment, This is our time
Seize it, [unintelligible], we won’t be denied.

Sure, that’s high-schoolers, they can think for themselves (in theory). Let’s get weirder.

“Barack Obama Rap”- Mr. Dobson’s and Mrs. Dudley’s 5th and 6th grade classes, Giffin Elementary School- Albany, NY

This one was done by third-graders at Powell Elementary School, in Camden, NJ
“Kings of Rock”- Powell Elementary School, Camden, NJ.

Barack Obama there is none higher
Other politicians should call me sire
To burn my kingdom you must use fire
I create change till I retire!

Democratic Party come correct
Our cuts are on time our rhymes connect
Got the right to vote and will elect
Others can’t feel us but give us respect

Now I walked through crowds, shook many hands
Spent my time saying YES WE CAN!
I stood on many stages, held many mics
Took airplane flights at great heights
PA and Jersey, I won that fight

Chicago Illinois was so hype
Moving so strong
Biden joined the fight
Now we are a team and we ignite!

Now I crash through walls,
Cut through floors,
Burst through ceilings
Knock down doors.

He is George
And I’m Turan
We’re never far behind
In class we shine
For every living person
With dreams and plans

Keep hope alive –
Think “Yes We Can”

We’re the baddest of the bad
The cool of the cool
I’m Barack
I rock and rule.

I’m Joe. I rock and rule.
It’s not a trick or treat or April fools,
It’s all brand new
With a little old school.

We’ve got the music and the message
For all my friends.
Check us out on the internet,
Load and send.

Music ain’t nothing
but a peoples jam.
It’s President Obama

Also, the National Education Association said that left-wing radical and Obama idol Saul Alinsky’s book Rules for Radicals was “recommended reading” for those in the teaching profession.

Obama buddy and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers called education the “motor-force of revolution.”

But sure. There’s no indoctrination going on in the school system. None at all. You can read more about how there’s no indoctrination going on at BigHollywood.
